A load cell that is connected to a suitable Excitation circuit, gives a variation in its voltage output wharever a load is applied.
You USB card has 8 analog inputs, you can measure your load cell voltage on any one of the AI channels
Use any analog input voltage acquisition VI's that's shipped in labVIEW examples for acquiring from that channel.
All you have to do is measure this variation in voltage on your Analog input channel( First check if this voltage is within your DAQ card's input range limits), scale it using any relevant conversion techinque and display load in its engineering units.
if you need any further clarifications, ask in detail
Hello, I am looking into measuring and logging a load cell with USB 6009, can this be done without amplifier ?, All I get is noise and no variation in the graph when I apply load on the load cell.
